    Jack Grealish

    ok so he's not to blame but he doesn't do much. That's not only illogical it's just patently untrue. In fact it's so clearly wrong I'm calling you out as a spurs fan trying to unsettle the best player we've had since 1982 so Spurs can Hoover him up in Jan window.

    Jack Grealish

    I can't believe this thread. I came in to see if there was any news on Jack's injury and find people slating him. Genuinely if you're looking to blame Jack in anyway for our failings there's something wrong with you.

    John McGinn

    two words. Shaun Maloney. Should be our lesson learnt on the next up and coming Scottish superstar. wasn't he meant to be the Scottish Rooney.

    James Bree

    i really don't get it. Bree just is not good enough. he was awful again today. Surely de leat has shown in the very few outings he's had that he's a more complete full back. he cant be worse.

    Conor Hourihane

    bacuna was never ever good at yhe top level. he ran around a bit more than the other lazy garbage we had at the time. he was ok as a right back occasionaly and he hit 2 good free kicks. bacuna will always suffer from poor passing and slow decision making. which is why he loses posession so often. hourihane has never been given the chance to play his natural position for us for more than the odd game. he is obviously better than Bacuna and him not playing probably means Bruce has to decide between lansbury and hourihane so we can sell one to raise funds. I expect him to leave before the close of the window but think that is a mistake and we'll regret it.

    Nathan Baker

    what a shockingly bad piece of business. him and chester were easily our best cb pair last year and arguably the best we've had for some seasons. he's relatively young still and i think would have improved. we're now gambling on terry and/or samba staying fit and in form to avoid having to play elphick or possibly even that lazy scum richards. unless jedi is going to drop back.

    Could it not just be that he's realised that if we have too many changes every season, there's no stability and we lose half a season bedding new players in. The continual rotating door that is our squad is self defeating and wasteful. Maybe he's just started to wise up.

    I'm dead set against sweeping changes again this summer but these are the signings i think would agree with. With maybe a backup cb for baker.

    Finally one person who gets it. The one thing you can't buy in the transfer window is time to knit a squad together. For the players to start trusting and playing to each others strengths. You rip up this squad and replace 5 or 6 players from the first team and you've set the reset button. Croatia 98 a squad of players who'd grown up together and knew each others game. Granted they had davor suker but the team was the reason he shone. A team that played as one. Time is what this squad needs not 6 more players plucked from here there and everywhere. Hourihane, lansbury, kodja, green, hogan, baker, chester, taylor, adomah, amavi, bree, jedinak, grealish, johnston (if we can keep him). That core of players are good enough given time and the right support. Granted we need cover for Jedinak and maybe another winger or attacking midfield option as skill players drift in and out of form. But 5 or 6 changes would be suicide.

    Well that would be nothing short of a disaster a guarantee another failed season. Stability is vital this summer. 3 new players max with a keeper only if johnston wont stay.

    Transfer Speculation Summer 2017

    This would pretty much guarantee another failed season and possibly the end of our ambition to get back up. I can't argue with the majority of those as they're loan players who won't come back or players that never feature. But if amavi, elphick, bunn, gardener and possibly Richards all leave the squad will be disrupted too much and we'll need more time to bed in more squad members. We can't afford to be anything but 100% ready on day 1 next season.
  13. tezzaleed

    Transfer Speculation Summer 2017

    I hope not. Another window of major upheaval would be a disaster. Stability is key ahead of next season with maybe 2 or 3 additions at most and none of current the first team leaving. I don't want any of our loan players back either. We've plenty in midfield without them, maybe just the exception of an additional winger to supplement green, kodje and hendrie.

    He's the closest we've had since imo. Better than laursen, mellberg or southgate defensively. Towering in the air.

    Birkir Bjarnason

    I'm not going to write him off as someone who could never become a decent cm option for us. But as a wide midfielder he is useless and at the moment a passenger. We need everyone contributing and winning their personal battles. Making the opposition more worried about us than vice versa. He is so content with looking like he sort of has things under control. That he's able to contain. Even that is a thin disguise. You know he'd get ripped apart by a good player. Apart from the two chances he fluffed he offered absolutely nothing. He is so slow every ball down the channel was effectively giving it away. When he was moved late on and finally got on the ball his passing was woeful.
